Opinion Letters Who is Jeb Bush?

I had an invite several years back to a party to welcome Mr. Jeb Bush to Miami. Mr. Bush moved to south Florida to be in charge of the Republican party. Having a father whom was president didn't hurt.

The powers to be knew the governor’s election was coming soon. All the powers there knew Mr. Jeb Bush couldn't win this time, but he ran anyway and lost. But next time his chances were greater. It was all well planned. From a pipe salesman to governor in a short time with the right connections works. With his family name and the help of the runaway Cubans he was a big winner.

Now his name is being pushed around for president is sad. I voted for his dad, a veteran but no way for this exused pipe salesman. Maybe we all had enough of the Bush's like the Kennedy's.

I think the Republicans better find a bright star somewhere other than Florida. Re-treads or runaways after 40 years in Florida let me say look elsewhere for that star. Maybe somewhere in North Carolina waiting to be discovered.

By the way if somebody gets upset for what I've written, tough.

With respect,

William Trapani — Franklin, N.C.
